A group of Ireland’s leading media organisations have come together to form an unprecedented coalition, and today launch a public fundraising campaign, ‘Ireland for Ukraine’.
The campaign aims to raise vital funds for those affected by the conflict, as well as those who have been displaced. The campaign is inspired by the incredible level of public support from Ireland for Ukraine to date.
The initiative will feature across local and national radio, television, print and online media, with all proceeds received by registered charity The Community Foundation for Ireland, who have 22 years’ experience in philanthropy and grant making.
50% of the funds collected will be distributed to the Irish Red Cross, Concern, UNICEF and Trocaire.
The other 50% will be pooled into a fund for grant aid applications available to Irish organisations and local groups assisting the anticipated 200,000 incoming people who have been forced to flee Ukraine and are seeking the safety of our communities in Ireland.
Donations can be made online at www.irelandforukraine.ie or by the Revolut app.
